Hot Buttered Soul - Isaaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul is one of the greatest Soul Albums ever made, and for me Isaac hayes greatest acheivement. The album is however lesser known by many, even with total soulfans.
For this reason i am publishing a post on this album here for those of you who haven't had the honor and blessing to have been able to listen to this Soul Mega Classic.

Download Issac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul
Walk on by is perhaps the most well known song on the album, which is a song that has been covered by a multitude of varioous Soul artists over the years. But Isaac Hayes' version is the classic of all classics.

Here is a video of Issac performing "Walk on By.

Other versions of Walk on By by other Artists;

here's another classic version from soul Deva Dionne Warwick from one of my childhood's favourite lunchtime tv programs (i always used to watch it when i was unemployed.. daytime tv is pretty boring in UK as most people are at work so they dont put much on, but pebble mill was one of the few watchable programs.

Dionne Warwick - Walk on By (Pebble Mill 1984)

Ok don't worry.. iu didn't forget to include the version by the Quen of Soul - the godess herself - Aretha Franklin! prepare to get some goosebumps when you listen to the songbird of Soul and R & B!

One of the strangest and uncannilly most enchanting versions of this song was a cover by the British Punk band "The Stranglers" I find this song really gets one jiggling! Have a listen;
